We are honored to be contacted so often by passionate members of our community wanting to organize an event or promotion benefiting breast cancer awareness and research. The Iowa Affiliate of Komen for the Cure® partners with others because it benefits both parties in terms of public awareness.
We want to make this process as simple as possible. In order for us to give each event and/or promotion request its due attention, we ask that you first read through these Guidelines to assist you in planning your event or promotion.
If after you've read the guidelines, you are interested in requesting an agreement with the Komen Iowa Affiliate, please complete the Application to Conduct an Independent Fundraiser to benefit the Iowa Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and return to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mail to:
The Iowa Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure
PO Box 8468
Des Moines, IA 50301
If you decide these guidelines do not fit with what you are hoping to accomplish, there are three other way to support Komen:
Other Ways to Fundraise
Option 1: You may want to consider not using the Komen name/logo and instead making a general statement that the funds raised will go to a local breast health organization or breast cancer research and support. We would be honored to receive funds raised and would give public recognition for your donation.
Option 2: You may want to consider registering for Passionately Pink for the Cure®. This program allows individuals, business and clubs/groups to fundraise for Komen. The website provides resources for your fundraising activities as well as a customizable web page. Click Here to learn how you can become Passionately Pink!
Option 3: Rally for the Cure® has expanded their well-established golf program to other events. You can now plan a Rally for the Cure® program for sporting events like tennis, dinner events such as wine-tasting or group/club activities such as a bridge or book clubs.
